Discover Sam Marcel makeup with me!

Today I am going to introduce you to a makeup brand I recently discovered and have been trying out for a while! SAM MARCEL Cosmetics – The story of this brand is amazing, inspired by a little girl fighting cancer, Sam Marcel was created to empower – the main focus being -affordable and safe ingredients 😊 The Sam Marcel products are not tested on animals, 100% cruelty-free, gluten and paraben free, and vegan.

Let’s check out some of their products.

That Glow Glow Highlight Palette

Sam Marcel Makeup review - Chai & Lipstick

That Glow Glow Highlight Palette has six highlight shades, all of these are jam-packed with pearl pigments for a super shiny highlight.. just the way I like it! I like that the pans are quite big compared to other highlighter palettes… this allows you to comfortably take the product without mixing shades. And yes I love the names given to the shades – it adds to the French touch!

Sam Marcel Makeup review - Chai & Lipstick

As you see the highlights are super strong and even on my dark skin the shades stay the same as in the pan. My personal fav is the shade “très chic”!

Price: 30$


Les Debut Neutral Eyeshadow Palette

I don’t say this often, but I would say this is a must-have palette – the shades are beautiful, very pigmented and in matte, satin and iridescent textures. The shades of this universal palette are well chosen to suit all skin types.

As you can see from the swatches again, the shades are really pigmented!

Price: 28$


Liquid Lipsticks

The liquid lipsticks come in a very beautiful shade range, the packaging is pretty and the applicator of the lipstick is very precise.

The only negative point for these lipsticks like any other matte lipsticks, they tend to get dry, prep your lips well before application to avoid an uncomfortable feeling. For touch ups, I advise to take off the lipstick completely and reapply.

Other Lipsticks

The lipsticks come in matte and satin finishes. As you can see the shades are a great mix of classics and trendy. The packaging is pretty, with a magnetic cap that keeps the lipstick well covered and secure.

The lipstick texture is very stable and the color is really intense as you will see in the swatches.

Crush or No Crush?

All in all the Sam Marcel products are great for their price, the products stay true to the claims made. The only product I am disappointed about is the Matte Liquid Lipstick – which has beautiful intense colors and a great velvet matte finish – but are too dry 😦 I hope they will rectify this in the formula.

That’s all for today guys, I hope you enjoyed discovering Sam Marcel with me, my next Blogpost is a look using these products 😉 stay tuned for it and SUBSCRIBE for updates on all our articles. For daily updates follow us on Instagram – Click Here.

Welcome to the Holiday Makeup look series, each makeup in this series has been created keeping in my current trends so that the looks you create this season are hit looks!

For the very first look of this series I chose a soft Rose Gold look, as this has really been hit the color almost all year round. It is a beautiful feminine chic color! Keep reading to see my step by step creation of this look and the products I used.

Holiday Rosegold Makeup Tutorial I did the eye makeup using the Huda Desert Dusk Palette. I used different finishes to get the best contrasts in my makeup.

Step 1.

Apply the shade ‘Bloodmoon’ from the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette all over the eyelid, and the shade ‘Oud’ in the crease and blend.

Step 4:

Apply the glitter textured ‘Cosmo’ shade on the inner corner.

Holiday Rosegold MakeupTo finish this look, work the eyelashes using a volume mascara. I used an eyelash primer Dior Maximizer 3D lash plumper and Smoky Lash Make Up For Ever Mascara. Finish the look with a nude lipstick I used a mix of ‘Disobedient’ and ‘Vanished’ vice lipsticks from Urban Decay.
